DJ Bliss, is among a small group of Emirati celebrity entertainers expanding their career and taking their talent internationally. He has established himself as one of UAE’s leading personalities and stands as the first Emirati DJ to go on tour. DJ Bliss was also the first to release compilation CD with BMGI, “The Projects”, reaching a Top 10 spot in the Virgin Mega Store’s Album Charts in 2003. Changing the game and setting trends along the way, DJ Bliss is a celebrity in his own right who has established his personal brand since 2006, while also establishing Bliss Inc. Entertainment.
After graduating in the summer of 1998 he got a job at a theme park where he first used his professional DJ equipment. As irony would have it, he was let go for spending too long “mixing and not enough time entertaining the crowd.” He went on to Dubai Polytechnic College during that time he broke into a guest DJ spot for Radio 1 Dubai on Teenzpoint.com and Crazyspin.com in 2001. Just a short couple of years later, he would win the Middle East Regional “Palm DJ of the year award” and be invited to play at the Ministry of Sound in London.
By 2006 DJ Bliss started promoting his own parties at Trilogy Dubai NightClub where he started his “Real Flava” night , booking artists and DJ’s like DJ Jazzy Jeff, Mos Def, DJ Drama, DJ Whookid and many more. The success of the “Real Flava” caught the attention of Radio 1 manager who wanted “The Real Flava” on the Radio every Friday.
DJ Bliss’s career would only continue to climb starting with an International tour in 2011 commencing in Amsterdam and continued in the Netherlands, England, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Belgium, France, Morocco, Lebanon, Thailand, and Africa. In 2014 after being signed by Skam Artist, a leading US based DJ/Talent booking agency, DJ Bliss added California, Las Vegas, Philadelphia , Miami, Detroit, Atlantic City to his list of accomplishments.
DJ Bliss has also added producer to his vast list of accomplishments by his collaborations with Jamaican Reggae artist, Shaggy; a song collaboration with Kardinal Offishall, ” Let It Go” and coproducing an album with Grammy Award winning musician Wyclef Jean for “April Showers” in 2013. Since being signed to Universal MENA in 2015, Bliss released his single “Shinning” featuring MIMS and Daffy, there will undoubtedly be additional music collaborations with other artists to come.
Taking his talents to the TV screen, DJ Bliss has also starred in a 2013 Chrysler Middle East Television Commercial for the 300 SRT while also being viewed by Dr Dre as the Middle East’s Beats by Dre official representative. And with his recent launch of his own DJ and talent booking agency, Selekt Talent Agency, DJ Bliss continues to expand the boundaries of music and entertainment.
